2022 ‘CRUEL MISTRESS’ PINOT NOIR. Larry Cherubino. Australia

Bin:  421

Alcohol percentage:  13.5%


To be precise this is from Porongurup and Denmark, near the Frankland River, in the deep south of Western Australia. A relatively cool region in which lighter varieties like Pinot can flourish.

Grape variety:

100% Pinot Noir, matured in French oak (but no new oak) for 6 months.


Ad Hoc is the ‘affordable label’ from Larry Cherubino. Larry is one of the trendy new breed of Aussie winemakers trying to dispel the traditional image of big, clumsy wines for which his country has become known.

Old Bridge rating:

“Hints of lipstick and leather” says the label – and quite right too. Red fruit and spice and earth all mingling successfully to make a bright but interesting Pinot.
